Brexit: Boris Johnson to make fresh early election bid

Oct 29, 2019 17:46 IST

British prime minister Boris Johnson is expected to make a fresh attempt to force an early general election, despite MPs rejecting his plan, after the European Union agreed to postpone Brexit for up to three months. MPs defeated a third attempt by Boris Johnson to call a snap poll, with the Conservative leader immediately announcing an alternative plan which could see an election in early December. Johnson suffered a major blow when he was forced to agree to delay Britain's departure from the European Union beyond this week's 31 October deadline. He had previously said he would rather be "dead in a ditch" than extend the tortuous Brexit process.
